Letter: 'Stop Blaming the RTM'

Fairfield resident writes in about the recent passage of the Fiscal Year 2013 town budget.

Stop blaming the RTM who stood their ground and demanded the Town do something about the constant spending. ; they just wanted to stop the increases the Town comes up with every year.

We all live on budgets. If we don’t have enough money, we make do with what we have. Many towns are getting the message. Governor Christie of New Jersey said new civilian workers must work until age 65 and 30 years to get early retirement. All workers must pay more for their pensions and health care. Pensions no longer automatically rise with inflation, but only when the state or town can afford such increases. Come on Fairfield, you can do it. Listen to the people!

oh and by the way NJ was 3rd from the bottom in job creation in 2011, lets not take advice from their bloated governor. He was only worse than the soon to be ex gov of wisconsin and the other Koch Bros. puppet from ohio.

Great article and well said! Not enough voters in this area realize it however. Once half the population moves to another lower tax,fiscally responsible state, maybe then they will get it.

Won't they sell their houses to new tax payers? Or will Greenfield Hill and Southport become low income housing?

How's that Wisconsin recall working out for you?

It worked out well the Republicans need to spend $10K per vote and Obama will still carry WI by 10%...thanks for asking. Oh yeah and the Dems now control the WI senate. All and all not too shabby.
